The Open We Space Lab

Sign up here and you’ll receive info to join the Lab each month.

Every first Tuesday of the month

We invite you to experience a new horizon of shared creativity from 7:30 to 9:30pm CET (1:30pm to 3:30pm US-EDT). (To find the time at your location, check World Time Buddy.) We meet via Zoom video conferencing, which allows you to participate from wherever you are.

What is a "we space"?

Every one of us is always in a “we space.” All life exists in relatedness. When we speak of “We Space” work, the aim is to bring our awareness to the subtle reality of our already-relatedness. You could call this the next step in mindfulness work, a collective consciousness practice that some call “psycho-active.” When people meet in mindful awareness, a new potential for a co-conscious creativity and synergy emerges. Conscious We-Space practice helps us cultivate this potential between us. It gives us an inspiring glimpse into a dynamic new cultural potential.

What do we mean by "We Space"?

“We Space” is a term that has a lot of different meanings. There is always a “We” that each of us is in at any moment. For these Open Labs, the term “We Space” refers to a practice of conscious interbeing where a co-conscious and co-creative intelligence becomes perceptible and available between us. This practice opens us to a wholeness that exists in the deeper and more subtle dimensions of human perception. This awareness of interbeing can emerge  between sensitive people who are curious about what is possible. By cultivating our sensing capacities, this practice brings us to a new way of being and creating together that has far-reaching consequences for our culture. 

This particular practice of we-work started in the 1990s as a collective spiritual practice in an intentional community, and has since evolved through the work of Thomas Steininger, Elizabeth Debold, and their core team/partners as a dialogue practice that facilitates the emergence of new cultural experiments of living connection and creative synergy.

We offer the Open We Space Lab as a gift, for free, as part of the Gift Economy. If you would like to make a gift in return, please donate.
Thank you.

Dr. Elizabeth Debold

For the last forty-some years, I have sought the answer to the question: how can we transform the dynamics of relationship and complexities of desire between women and men so that we all can thrive and reach our full human potential?

This inquiry has taken me from feminist activism in New York City to a doctorate in developmental psychology with Dr. Carol Gilligan at Harvard to a tumultuous global spiritual community that pioneered collective awakening and, finally, to an ongoing experiment in intersubjective emergence in Frankfurt, Germany.

I founded One World in Dialogue, an online forum to explore how intersubjectivity can bring us together across cultures to create new capacities in global consciousness. An author, transformative educator, journalist/editor, community leader and mentor, I have found the answer to my question in the amazing collective emergence of the Co-Conscious We and seek to share its potential in all that I do.
